'll talk about what happened in florida as well. you have three to four hours. people have jobs and have places to go, but they also want to vote. it is utterly important. what's going on there? >> reporter: in ohio there is only one early voting center for every county. so, for instance, a couple of weeks ago i was in dlcolumbus where the early voting center is outside of columbus. it was the same scene. there's only one center in each county. a lot of people want it to vote early. some had to vote early because of work schedules tomorrow, and that's why the lines are so long. tamron. >> thank you very much in cincinnati. greatly appreciate your time. for the candidates themselves, this is it. right now president obama just landed in ohio, the state where you saw those long lines just a second ago, after a morning stop in wisconsin. mitt romney is headed to his second stop in virginia. the president will close out his final day of campaigning in iowa, the state that pushed him into the national spotlight. mitt romney will make his land stand later today in his home away from home, new h
florida. his team does. i don't think it's a double-digit lead, but they're feeling good about florida. they're feeling good about wisconsin. they think the apparatus in place from the efforts on behalf of scott walker are going to galvanize republicans and make sure that a ground game turns out the vote. the same for mitt romney and paul ryan. they are feeling good about a lot of states where they've closed with the president, if they haven't surpassed him. what they're always hoping, too, tamron is that this is 1980 and that there's going to be a last-minute wave for romney. had they come to the polls, they go, i've really gone back and forth. it's time for something new and that he ends up winning, and maybe it's not by a landslide, but by a very healthy margin. and that's what they're counting on in these final days. >> keith, let me bring you in. i want to play a little bit of what the director of marist polling had to say about what we're seeing in some of these numbers. let's play it. >> mitt romney's favorable, unfavorable is still upside down in iowa, not in new hampshire or w
and possible 332 electoral vote fs obama picks up florida. not one swing state went for romney. there's a lot of reflection taking place. many republicans i spoke to yet are out of their denial. they know that their coalition is white, that the white vote is decreasing with every single election cycle. that's the trend for 20 years. it's not going away. it will only get worse. the only way for them to be a majority party is for their poech policies to represent a majority of the country. obviously, president obama and his team planned for an enthusiasm deficit. they knew they would lose black and brown voters and young voters from 2008 and went out and got more. republicans know that. it's demographics and mechanics on the ground. and they got whooped in both departments. if they don't make changes, they're a minority party in 2016 and beyond. >> we're running out of time. chris, if you had one word of advice for the gop moving ahead, what would it be, if you can put if in one word or two. >> it's actually simple. diversify. you can't be a party that speaks only to white people and think you'

battleground states from colorado to florida. romney hitting seven battle ground states over the next four days both making their closing arguments to voters and saying the election is about change. >> the question of this election comes down to this. do you want more of the same, or do you want real change? we are real change. >> when you try to change the facts, just because they're inconvenient to your campaign, that's definitely not change. >> let's bring in today's "news nation" political panel, anne kornbluth and david goodfriend. thank you so much for joining us. anne, it's interesting the president picking up on the fact that mitt romney right before hurricane sandy hit had started to identify himself as the change candidate here and the president pointing out change of facts is not change. what do we make of the last four days and this line-up back and forth? >> it's interesting they're both returning to obama's core argument of 2008. it wasn't one obama emphasized particularly throughout the course of the race. hope and change were difficult words for him obviously because they didn't
there is to do and the future that lies ahead. >> at this hour, one state remains undecided. it is florida. still too close to call and nothing to change the outcome of the race. another big victory for democrats last night was in the senate. democrats not only maintain the majority but picked up a handful seats. among the biggest wins, massachusetts, wisconsin, missouri, ina, connecticut and virginia. senate majority leader harry reid just a short time ago called for bipartisanship. >> the way we get things done is to work together. but we need republicans to help us.i thers compromises not a dirty word. >> but we're already seeing statements like this one from senator mitch mcconnell who said last night, quote, now it's time for the president to propose solutionce of passing the republican-controlled house of representatives. perhaps setting the stage gridl republicans maintained solid;[ majority in the next hour we're expecting to hear of house speaker john boehner. right now, joining me, national syndicated talk show host michael smirconish and joe frolic for "the cleveland plain dealer." th
30,000 pages of inappropriate e-mails to this woman in tampa, florida. if i describe every inappropriate act in my life, i don't think it would fill 20,000 to 30,000 pages. he's doing this from afghanistan while he's running or helping to run a war. to state the obvious, leadership is very important in the military. if you're a trooper going on patrol in afghanistan today, you've got to believe that your leaders, your generals, your commanders have their eye on the ball. that they are paying attention and they are not frittering away their time sending inappropriate e-mails to women in tampa, florida. that's crazy, that's irresponsible. that lets down our troops and that causes improper disrespect for the military as an institution. >> we appreciate your time. e we know your article has a lot of people talking. they will be discuss iing it. thank you very much. in the past hour, president obama finished meeting with labor and progressive leaders at the white house as part of an escalating effort to avert the fiscal cliff. >> it was a very, very positive meeting. the preside

is now coming out after these meetings, i got an e-mail statement from florida senator bill nelson who said one of the things that was made clear at today's meeting was that susan rice, when she was giving the cia intelligence that she did on all those sunday shows, that was what was seen as the intelligence at the time. there was a lot of different moving parts and here and there what was going on. bottom line what republicans have been talking about and criticizing is that the administration didn't have its whole act together, didn't have all the information straight the very next day. at the end of the day they had the story down within two weeks. that is really where the story is, and there is the argument to be made that particularly that the susan rice confirmation if she's picked to be secretary of state, this might be the last that you end up hearing from all of this in a political context. >> you have that news statement from senator nelson, but that is likely not the interpretation from senator mccain and susan collins and a few others? >> that is right. it's interesting to s

back, but first, there's a lot going on today. here's some things we thought you should know. florida congressman allen west is not gifg up the fight. despite a recount that gave his democratic opponent patrick murphy a 2,000-vote lead, west is calling the recount process -- wait for it -- a sham, and he's vows to pursue any legal means at his disposal. karl rove is hearing from bart simpson after his refusal to concede ohio to president obama on election night. on the popular show last night, bart is seen writing i will not concede the election until karl rove giving me permission. you see it at the bottom. those are the things we want you to know and seechlt .
